Run MATLAB on Microsoft Azure Using Reference Architecture

Use a customizable reference architecture to run MATLAB® on a Windows® or Linux® virtual machine in Microsoft® Azure®. The reference architecture includes MATLAB, Simulink®, and toolboxes, as well as support for GPUs.

Use this reference architecture when you want to launch MATLAB in a specific region, combine your MATLAB resources with your existing cloud resources, or automate deployment.

For a simpler but less customizable method of launching a MATLAB in Microsoft Azure, see Run MATLAB from Microsoft Azure Marketplace.


To use this reference architecture, you need:

  • A Microsoft Azure account. You are responsible for the costs of all Microsoft Azure services.

  • A MATLAB license that meets the following conditions:

    • Linked to a MathWorks Account.

    • Configured for cloud use. Individual and Campus-Wide licenses are already configured. For other license types, contact your administrator. You can identify your license type and administrator by viewing your MathWorks Account. Administrators can consult Administer Network Licenses.

Run from GitHub

To launch MATLAB in Microsoft Azure, use the reference architecture templates provided in the following GitHub® repository:

You can run the template directly from the link in the GitHub repository. Choose your MATLAB release, and then click the Deploy to Azure icon.
